CHRIS “MAD DOG” RUSSO has signed a new three-year deal to remain with SIRIUSXM RADIO, continuing to host his daily "MAD DOG UNLEASHED" show on his MAD DOG SPORTS RADIO channel. In addition with the new deal, RUSSO, who will also be dubbed SIRIUSXM's "baseball ambassador," will be hosting a new daily show simulcast on MLB TV and SIRIUSXM's MLB NETWORK RADIO in 2014.
“I’ve always loved the on-air freedom that comes with being on SIRIUSXM,” said RUSSO, who joined the satellite service from CBS RADIO Sports WFAN-A/NEW YORK. “I can do the kind of show here that I wouldn’t be able to do anywhere else and I’m fortunate to be able to continue to give my listeners my kind of sports talk radio each and every day on MAD DOG UNLEASHED. I’ll also get to emphasize my passion for baseball with my new role on MLB NETWORK RADIO and MLB NETWORK, where I’ll be talking to dyed-in-the-wool baseball fans like me throughout the year. This is a terrific opportunity that allows me to do what I do best, while also reaching new audiences.”
